<p ="Msonormal">See this is why i said over-analysing, because as an African,
I understood his jokes and that he was mocking American stereotypes and not
Africa. But what I seem to get from you is that we may not be capable of
understanding American jokes so we should take offence.

People are going to be
offended no matter what, that doesn’t mean we should rubbish someone’s effort.

<p ="Msonormal">and what is wrong with choosing an American to host the show, its MTV africa doesnt mean everything has to be African



what the fuccck??!

seriously!!??

where are you getting that fromConfused

Personally i thought all she was saying was that just because you weren't offended, doesn't mean others weren't, and that doesn't mean they are overanalysing, it simply means they were offended...

augie--I'm trying my hardest to be level-headed and polite with you...

don't twist my words

what I said was that just because you're not offended doesn't mean you get to tell anybody else how they should feel

I'm african too btw and I found his jokes offensive (you don't have to find them distasteful but you don't get to tell anyone how they should take it)

I guess we need to watch the show

mocking africa = mocking american stereotypes?

I can see if he was shedding light on ignorance a la Dave Chappelle (which I am sure Marlon is not capable of) but being AA and making rude ass jokes is not the same thing

I think he is ignorant! Sometimes we want to excuse comedians because they actually think what they are saying is FUNNY! But its often based out of pure hate and ignorance. Its like some who get up and debase women, in their routines we need to stop allowing stuff like this. I used to like him but he is just getting sillier and NOT in a good way.
